But that is not where the wooden wonder ends as the floorboards made from recycled tallow-wood give the home a hint of green goodness and sustainability. Spread across two spacious levels the living areas are housed on the top floor to ensure that the homeowners can enjoy the best possible views throughout the day.
The idea came about when the homeowner asked the architects to spare enough room for the 3 tapestries of houses made by her mom! The timber beams not only add visual splendor but also offer insulation and ample shade for the homeowners to enjoy some lovely summer evenings in the courtyard.
The architects from ensured that the classic Victorian-style street façade of the house remained intact along with the bedrooms in the main house. Instead they capitalized on the additional space in the rear and crafted a trendy and contemporary glass extension that now houses the living room kitchen and the spacious dining area.
Located in a skyscraper that features a fitness center spa and valet services a bicycle room a rooftop terrace and integrated WiFi services the lavish apartment will drape you in unadulterated luxury. Coming with two amazing bedrooms and three bathrooms that feature historic decor additions the penthouse itself offers a relaxing Jacuzzi and sauna along with unabated views of the Statue of Liberty and the Hudson River in the distance. One of the two entrances of the penthouse leads into a living area that is covered with reclaimed hardwood floors from the Portuguese embassy in Paris. And that is just the start of the remarkable collection that the luxurious home holds!
The top two levels feature four different bedrooms that include two principle suites and a couple of bunk rooms. Designed to serve as a wonderful getaway both in the winters and in summers for generations to come the Crow’s Nest perfectly complements the surrounding landscape while offering the best possible views of the mighty Nevada range.
The designers of the home wish to dub the typical style that its interiors exude as ‘rural rustic’ and that definitely is not far off from the truth. Yet the genius of its design lies in incorporating these rustic elements and textures without disturbing the overall modern vibe of the space.
The all-white kitchen and the dining space that embraces natural organic textures add to this tranquil vibe of the home. A lavish outdoor deck with a kitchenette dining area fireplace and a trendy lounge completes this fabulous getaway that redefines the way many of us look at beach houses.
